Low-Point Tomato Zucchini Soup

Yum
My husband and I love going out for lunch. However, doing this too many times causes you to use a bit too many of your daily allotted points, leaving very little for a delicious supper. Got it covered with this super savory soup for only .5 points a cup! Awesome! Going to add this recipe to my list of "make often, especially after high-point lunches!"


Low-Point Tomato Zucchini Soup
Ingredients:
- 2 medium zucchini, chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. Goya Adobo seasoning
- 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
(use any of your favorite seasonings to taste. It doesn't have to be these.)
- 1 cup Spicy V8 Juice
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 3 large fresh basil leaves, chopped
In a large skillet, saute the zucchini and onion in olive oil until crisp-tender. Sprinkle in seasonings and add the V8 juice, chicken broth, basil, and chopped tomato. Cook until heated through. OPTIONAL: Add 2 strips of crumbled cooked bacon. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
